- The Classis of the PRCP met Thursday, February 25. The meeting was chaired by Rev. Ibe and was held in the Maranatha PRC in Valenzuela. Most of the work of Classis was routine. The most significant item that Classis treated was the request of Rev. Leovino Trinidad (the pastor of the Maranatha PRC) to be examined by the Classis according to Article 9 of the Church Order with a view to being declared a minister of the Word and Sacraments in the PRCP. The Classis approved his request and scheduled his examination for the next Classis meeting. Classis will hold its next meeting on Monday, June 13, the Lord willing.
- The congregation of Doon PRC will be voting to call a second missionary to the Philppines on Monday, Feb.29 from a trio consisting of Revs. Brian Huizenga (Hope, Redlands, CA), Dan Holstege (1st, Holland, MI), and C. Griess (Calvary, Hull, IA).
- The next PRC pastor assigned to visit the Philippine mission field and provide assistance to missionary-pastor D. Kleyn is Rev. A.Spriensma (Byron Center PRC). He is scheduled to be there for the Sundays of March 27, April 3 and 10.
